    This is making me mad and concert about being part of a botnet =/. The jerk sending these out are sending it to everyone on my contact list, using their handle. Thanks fully I dont have clients emails on my email account, just networks etc, but still this is worrying me.

    I already change my password, and when I log in to my account at night, more notifications appeared. Can anyone please help me with this? Like teaching me how to see if someone is using my pc remotely from some other place, or recommend me a good antivirus? Thanks in advance :(

    Note: Obviously that isn't my site, domain, and I dont do mailing, much less scams like this guy/girl is doing. Just pointing that out to the trolls.

    if you got infected by some smart botnets hard to believe any antivirus will help you at all :) ... only solution most probably will be to format your hdd and do a clean install . Yeh ... you will see most probably advices to scan with malwarebits and other tools maybe helps you but still ... if you changed your passwords wile the virus was on your computer the new passwords are already compromised so ... try to use a clean computer ;)

    Just search your computer for anything suspicious, otherwise it could be something from hotmail, i get those mails sometime to, not that many but a few now and then.

    Search your computer, change password if you want to be totaly safe

    open the message and then select " view source" at the top. You can view what IP it was sent from. It might be coming from your server i had that happen to me after installed some nulled scripts. If its coming from your local PC just wipe Bastard and install a Linux distro instead. Or just Dual boot .
